In recent times, the Italian government has swung onto the Trumpian path of hatred and inhumanity. Ships saving refugees from drowning have been turned away.
Michael Hardt and Sandro Mezzadra have established Operation Mediterranean, which now owns a rescue ship, the Mare Jonio. Since it is registered in Italy, and has a mostly Italian crew, it cannot be refused entry to Italian ports.
The excuse for barring more people from Africa is that Europe is being swamped by them. True, but… the solution is not mass murder by inaction. Rather, the causes need to be addressed:
Stop the Saudi attack on Yemen. Stop the forever Syrian war. Stop the many conflicts in Sub-Saharan Africa.
For about forever, western actions within Africa have been ways of stealing their wealth, and empowering corrupt elites. Social justice would halt the conflicts, and the tsunami of refugees.
